Here's what Thomas had to say about this special album:
"This was a project I have wanted to do for some time. I wanted to take some of the inspirational songs from my first encounters with great Jazz singers and take it in a raw format to the stage and record it in front of a live audience, as most jazz records of the day where recorded. And also to see how some of my own material coped with an authentic jazz set up. All live. I hope you enjoy it.
P.S. I've added my recording of the Paul McCartney song 'Maybe I'm Amazed' which was recorded live for BBC Radio Merseyside as the brain child of Mike Neary to raise awareness for The Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool. It just seemed to sit in so well with the feel."
